Hello everyone! My name is Corinna Broussard and I am honored to serve as your 2017 Elbert County Fair Queen.
Growing up in Elizabeth, I have attended and participated in the EC Fair dozens of times in my 16 year life span, and to this day, it's still my favorite fair. I knew I wanted to share my love and passion for Elbert County by pursuing a royalty title.
4-H and horses have an essential role in my life and have shaped me to become the person I am today. Going into my 6th year of 4-H, I am eager to participate in projects such as Horse, Horse Bowl, Horse Judging, and Archery as part of the Gold Creek 4-H club. Volunteering at various therapeutic riding centers has exposed me to the joy of working with horses, from spunky off-the-track thoroughbreds to handy ranch quarter horses. You will see Misty, a flashy paint mare with two blue eyes, and me riding at many local rodeos and showing at the EC Fair. Outside of the 4-H world, I am a sophomore at Elizabeth High School. I enjoy singing and am honored to be a part of Bel Canto Women's Choir at my school. Being a nature lover, I love hiking, fishing, and being outdoors. I am also a part of the EHS Rodeo Team and am on track to study at a 4-year university with help from future scholarships granted from royalty, opportunities through 4-H, and the CO Association for the Gifted and Talented.
I love traveling to other rodeos, fair, and events with my princess, Emily Vogl, and our equine friends representing our county. I especially love to meet the people from age 1 to 101 who have the same passion for rodeo and agriculture as I do. It's inspiring to get to know people's stories, even if it's just a page out of a whole book. A village of people help me fulfill my royalty duties and responsibilities. I am so thankful to my parents, Jamie and Suzanne Broussard, who have been so supportive in transporting me to all my duties. My mom is always the one to help me prepare speeches, curl my hair, tack up my horse, or help with makeup. Mrs. Vogl, Emily's mom, and the Vogl family have been like a second family to me. I'm grateful to Coordinator Ms. Mary Louise Jacobson for directing us. I would also like to thank the EC Fair Board for their support of our royalty, not to mention all the 4-H leaders who have helped get me here. I hope to see you at the fairgrounds in charming Kiowa, CO from August 1-6 for one of the best fairs around.

Hello Everyone! My name is Emily Vogl, and I am your 2017 Elbert County Fair Princess.
I feel very privileged to carry such an honorable title. I have lived in EC for 6 years now, and I am currently homeschooled with my older twin sisters. I love being homeschooled because it gives me the time to spend with my animals and extra time to work on my 4-H projects. After I finish high school, I plan to attend Colorado State University, studying Agricultural Science. One day I hope to have my own veterinary clinic.
I have been involved in 4-H for 2 years, and I am currently in the Gold Creek 4-H club. Two years may not seem like that long, but I have already learned so much from such an amazing program! This year I am participating in horse judging, scrap booking, and quilting.
I have always been interested in animals, and I especially love horses! My older sister and I have four horses that we share, with the names of Remington, Scout, Paco, and our mini, Penny. I could not live without them! All of our horses are adopted or came from an unusual circumstance. Each is unique and special in their own way, but my favorite has to be Remington, a 13-year-old Buckskin/Appendix Quarter horse. He is in training to be the best royalty horse he can be, but he still has a little bit to go. I have faith that he will be running hot laps and walking in parades very soon!
I am extremely blessed with a wonderful and supportive family who help me fulfill my dreams. I could not have become your 2017 EC Fair Princess without my wonderful family and supportive friends! I would also like to thank our many amazing sponsors and our great royalty coordinator, Mary Louise Jacobson, for their continued help and support. I am excited to represent and be an ambassador for our 2017 EC Fair, and I cannot wait to visit other fairs, rodeos, and charity events. Please come and be a part of our wonderful fair, August 1-6, and see the hard-working 4-H kids show their wonderful projects, the Big Time Bucking Futurity, BBQ dinner, and so much more! I can't wait to see you there!
